Hello @Fenita 

Thank you for being interested in Tapo smart Action feature. May I know how what scene do you want to set up using smart action feature, do you use Android or IOS device? 
As far as I know tapo camera smart action part is still under development, you may  keep on eye on the firmware release note of tapo camera for this feature on Tapo app 
How to create an automation or a shortcut of my Tapo device (smart bulb, smart plug, smart camera)

@Solla-topee , I would like to be able to enable / disable the camera in common scenarios with other devices. For example, I'm leaving home and I need to turn off sockets, lamps and turn on the camera.

Hello @Fenita 

Really appreciated for the explanation about the requested feature, Geo-fencing sounds to be useful, we will record your feedback first for further evaluation.  

If you use IOS device, you could check IOS Shortcut /Automation could work as the workaround. 

If anyone requests the similar feature, please comment below with the model or leave your idea in  Feature request board here , we would collect them for evaluation. Thank you.

  @Solla-topee Hi, I have the same issue. I'd like to automate the private mode on / off setting based on whether I'm coming home or leaving home using a shortcut. This scenario is even included in the templates in smart actions but the camera is not recognized there ("no available devices" under the smart camera option.

 

The camera works just fine in the app and I can enable / disable the private mode manually in the camera settings. So I don't understand why I cannot use it in smart actions.

 

I'm using Tapo C210 with the lates fw 1.1.16 Build 220119 Rel.41999n(4555)

TP-Link Tapo app version 2.4.70

Android 12

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 5G

  @Solla-topee Hi, any news on this topic? Without this function the camera is not really smart and not worth the buy...

The current Leave Home or Go home still require you to Tap the Shortcut you created to take active ( Trigger : with one tap ; Action: turn on/ off device )

not Geofencing yet. I've recorded your request for evaluation , we will  update on the above popular thread when there is any progress.

  @Solla-topee 

Missing feature from my side as well, I want to set automation like this:trigger would be camera motion detection; automation would be to turn on light on smart bulb.

 

Additionally, motion detection is even on low mode too sensitive, every bus triggers motion. On the other hand it missed to detect car leaving front yard.

  @Solla-topee Same here, model C210 with latest firmware.

 

Please resolve soon, it makes customers like me afraid of buying your smart things if they can't be added or detected.
